Summer has arrived with all its glory – long days, beautiful weather, and from a nutritional perspective – the beginning of lots of fresh vegetables and fruits! While there are a wide variety of nutrition experts offering their opinions –one that most agree on is to eat vegetables! Vegetables are loaded with important nutrients – vitamins, minerals, and fiber. This month’s feature article reviews the vitamins most abundant in vegetables; next month’s focuses on the minerals. With the supply of fresh vegetables it is also a great time to consider a cleanse. Even if you are not up for the full 21 days I have several 10 day versions available as well.
This past month I’ve continued my blood chemistry training and have a new software program that analyzes your results and produces supplement recommendations. More on that below.
Now’s the Time to Take Advantage of Fresh Vegetables and Their Nutritional Benefits – Part 1
I don’t know about you, but this is my favorite time of the year. Not only is the weather beautiful and the days long, but it means our fresh local vegetables are here! They are at the road side stands, the Farmer’s Markets, and the CSAs begin delivering. For those of you unfamiliar with the term CSA it means Consumer Supported Agriculture. You (the consumer) buy direct from local farmers who offer these programs. There are many CSAs in our area with deliveries likely into your neighborhood and I encourage you to find one. It is not only good for you, but supports your local farmer as well. The CSA I belong to had its first delivery of the year including basil, lettuce, spinach, arugula, green onions, pole beans, and even some maple syrup!

Blood Chemistry Special Offer
As I mentioned above last month I attended another workshop on interpreting blood chemistry. I find this work fascinating since we all are familiar with the story – someone doesn’t feel well, they go to their doctor and have a blood test, and are told everything is “normal.” As I’ve said before “normal” does not mean “healthy.” Normal means you are under the bell curve and within 95% of the population taking the test at that lab. In today’s world that certainly doesn’t pass for healthy.
Part of this workshop included a software package. This program looks at all the information together, rather than in isolation. It finds the patterns and makes recommendations to bring the body into more healthy balance.
This month I have a special offer – I’ll do the analysis for $50 – one half the normal cost. You can bring in a recent blood test either from your doctor or go to http://www.directlabs.com/ to get a fresh blood draw at a local lab. For more information give me a call or send an email.
Speaking of Direct Labs – this month’s special is awesome – Male and Female Health Check – includes the Comprehensive Wellness Panel plus urinalysis, hormones, and C-Reactive protein (inflammation marker).
Try a 10 Day Cleanse
Summer is a great time to take advantage of the fresh vegetables that are abundant and to a cleanse. Perhaps the 21 day program is too much commitment with all the summer parties? Well, I have the solution – a 10 day program! I have several options for you: – a 10-day detox, blood sugar balance, female vitality, male vitality, or anti-inflammation. For more information give me a call or send an email.
